All roads lead to Sun City this coming weekend where the South African Music Awards (SAMAs) will be celebrating its 21st birthday.

Various artists across the board were nominated in all the different categories and some winners will be more triumphant than others.

In case you didn’t know, Nyovest and AKA are leaders of the pack at this year’s SAMAs, with no less than three nominations each.

A few weeks back, Nyovest took to social media to express his anger for not being nominated in the song of the year category.

Once that settled down, foes turned friends Nyovest and AKA were seen hanging out.

Earlier this week, Nyovest blew Twitter away when he stated he was not happy with the collaboration between Woolworths SA and Pharrell Williams.

The conversation sparked great debate and everybody on Twitter got involved.

AKA on the other hand was decked by social media when he Tweeted a picture of his lunch.

Twitter came out guns blazing, criticing him.

Only recently has AKA and his girlfriend DJ Zinhle started sharing their pregnancy diary with the public, whereas in the beginning, they denied being a couple.

Nonetheless, the two have managed to score themselves free publicity as a build-up to the SAMAs.

Kudos to their PR and Marketing teams.

Beatenberg also seems to be excited about Saturday as they tweeted this to their fans:
